I go to sleep when he wakes up: Shah Rukh Khan on working with Akshay Kumar
During a recent interview with a leading media organisation, Shah Rukh Khan was asked if he would be seen in a film with Akshay Kumar. Responding to that, the Zero actor reportedly said, “What do I say to this? I don’t wake up as early as him.”
While Akshay is known for waking up early and managing his schedules with precision, Shah Rukh prefers to work late at night.
He added, “I go to sleep when Akshay is waking up. His day starts early. By the time I start working, he is packing up and going home. So he can put in more hours of work. I’m a nocturnal person. Not many people are fond of shooting at night like me.”
Shah Rukh further reportedly said that if they do work together, they will never meet on the sets. “It will be fun to act with Akshay. Dono set pe hi nahin milenge. Woh jaa raha hoga aur main aa raha hounga (laughs). He’ll be leaving the set and I’ll be coming in. I would like to work like Akshay and with him, but our timings won’t match.”
While Shah Rukh is yet to announce his next project, Akshay will be seen in Mission Mangal, Housefull 4, Kesari and Battle of Saragarhi.
